WE ARE THE 99%
And when we lobby, we win!
Welcome to Lobby99
Our mission is simple. We make it easy for you to have your say, in your government, that is supposed to represent your interests.
I vote. Isn't that enough?
Voting is important to elect representatives who'll advocate for policies that work in your interests or those of the overwhelming majority of Americans.
Once in office, if they know their constituents understand the issues, they need to know how to keep your vote in the future.
Yep! Lobbying isn't magic. It's simply letting your representatives know how you want them to represent you.
Corporations and rich interests lobby with their campaign contributions. And you can bet they're advocating every day for policies that help themselves.
They have a lot more money, but the rest of us have a lot more people. And if enough of us lobby, they won't be able to ignore us without risking their re-election.
So why Lobby99?
We make it easy and quick for you!
Our news arm, NewsInFiVe, explains news so you can clearly understand what's going in in a short amount of time.
Then we make it quick for to do your lobbying part - either writing to your representatives in Congress or commenting on a proposed regulation.
